Play • 19 min

EPISODE 17

What was your opinion of studying poetry in elementary school? How about in college? Some of our experiences with our own education shapes how we feel about topics that we teach our own students. For the longest time, I thought that because I had a difficult time with poetry in college that I would never be a good poetry teacher.

 

As the years went by, I learned several ways to make poetry fun, and I finally found my love for it again. While April is poetry month, we really should be teaching poetry all year long! There are so many simple and creative ways that we can build poetry into our days within reading, writing, and even behavior management!

 

In this episode I share:

  • My memories of experiencing poetry as a child
  • Ways to create an experience around poetry that leaves your students feeling empowered and excited about writing
  • The benefits of reading and writing different types of poetry often
  • Connecting poetry to art
